Kavan,

Long time no hear/see. We're doing a big push on 850s for MTM07. Any chance you'd bring over the Moke?

Hi Billy,
Just about to start work on replacing the floor and heelboard of the Moke - the 850 is no more - 1275 A+.

I've missed not having the Moke on the road over the last two summers, and, provided I can make steady progress on the work, will make it to the MTM.

(If Simon is doing the run in his GT, then I could strap the 850 in to the passenger seat as ballast, for old times sake)

Kavan, here's a suggestion. Keep cutting out the floor, hook the 850 up to the rear wheels and create your own Twini! My calculator tells me that you would then have a 60/40 power ratio (similar to an Audi Quattro or other cool 4WD). With the additional power and off-road capability, the Moke could be used for recovery purposes for any Minis that go climbing ditches etc (subtle dig). Actually if there aren't rear seats in the Moke, You could hook up a small crane and hitch. Methinks we could have our MTM recovery service sorted!!!!
